IT support looking into it.
If hitting it with a hammer doesn\'t work it\'s definitely an electrical problem.

Or, dump AVG and replace it with a straw hat.... (j/k) ;-)

Firstly, The security warning from AVG points to a different site, which is not DTP.
Secondly, Google Webmaster Tools has not detected any malware on the site.

However, this can occur as a result of a cross-site scripting flaw, but if this is the case, I need to know which DTP pages you are viewing when this warning comes up.



------- The Following Is My Personal Opinion and not that of DTP --------

In my opinion, AVG is not a very good antivirus package, I have spent far too many years removing viruses and malware from computers that have AVG, but report that they are clear of malware...

There are others i will also not recommend, such as Norman / Norton / Symantec,  but if you want to increase your protection I would thoroughly recommend MalwareByte's Anti-Malware which works in conjunction with most web-browsers and most anti-virus products.

Also don't forget to update your JAVA, Windows, PDF reader, Flash, etc...

- out of Data Java is a major vulnerability, and if you have a 64bit OS the Java Auto Updater will only inform you about the 32bit version, so your 64bit version can go out of date without realising....

Anyway, I digress - if you see a message like this, please PM me the link to the DTP page you are on when it comes up, and i will investigate

Ok, despite checking all the files and data manually, I have been unable to find any evidence of any viruses or hacks on DTP.

If anyone sees any suspicious pop-ups on any page of DTP, please let me know right away.
